A Visual History Of The Most Awesome Animal Puns Of All Time

Wordplay can be really entertaining, even if it makes you groan when the line is delivered. Many animal puns are really obvious and still great fun, but the creators of these one-liners took things to the next level.

These aren't your ordinary everyday puns, but rather works of art. The fact that each of them comes with a cute animal is a bonus. Once you've heard these, you'll be dying to use them in conversation with your friends.

We think our favorite is number 13, but we're absolutely sure you'll like them all. We certainly did.

1. His Fate Is Sealed

BCDN

This pun gets our seal of approval. It's an easy one to get us started, but it's a good one, isn't it? 

2. Prey Tell

Mashable

We were not emused to hear this pun. But toucan play that game and we're not going to end up owl by ourselves here. 

3. Collegiate Cattle

BCDN

There's not much you can add to that, is there? This is one of the most succinct and unusual animal puns on our list. 

4. Koala Conundrum

BCDN

It would take some bear-faced-cheek to tell a koala this because it's not even true. But bless him and that wonderful look on his face.

5. Nelly The Elephant

BCDN

Elephants are said to never forget, that's why we're not going to share this shameful pun with the elephants that we know. We promise. 

6. Window-Licking Good

BCDN

This guy had us outfoxed in the face-pulling competition. We bet he's thinking "I'm foxy and I know it." But he's the only one. 

7. The Journey Continues

BCDN

It was meant ta-bby, obviously. This retriever is pretty dogged in pursuit of his feline chum. We just hope she doesn't start cat-erwauling now. 

8. Goat Out Of Here

BCDN

This guy's obviously a bit of a "Billy no mates." He's not goat a lot going for himself, has he? We know, you've goat to go now. 

9. Could Have Been Worse

BCDN

In fact, if this pun had been worse would it have been cat-astrophic? Would you have felt cheetah'd? We love feline puns, they rock.

10. Big And Bad

BCDN

We wonder if when they visit a doctor he has to swear the Hippo-cratic oath too? Too much? Sorry, we couldn't help ourselves.

11. He Could Just Hop A Ride

BCDN

It'd be newt if this was the way the world really worked. Talking animals at bus stops would be awesome and make bus travel much more appealing.

12. Barking Mad

BCDN

Well doggone it, it took us a minute to get this one. It made us wince when it finally sunk in, the sign of a perfect pun. 

13. Clever Clogs

BCDN

An excellent twist on the traditional pun. It's also our favorite double animal wordplay in history. The bears and the bees, where's Winnie the Pooh?

14. Wham Bamboo

Mashable

This one's pretty unbearable but we're sure that the panda's face makes up for the bad pun. If not, just grin and bear it. 

15. We're All Ears

Imgur

Do you think when he goes on holiday, it's to Tusk-any? Wherever he ends up, we're not going to argue with him.

We love animal puns, we thought these were really clever pieces of wordplay. We're not lion when we say that either, we really mean it.
